will keep you updated. we're keeping a close watch on hurricane sandy for you. want to tell you jim acosta is in maryland. there he is. excuse me, marion, ohio, traveling with the romney campaign. give us a quick update. this has really changed the plans for mitt romney and for president barack obama but what are you hearing from the romney camp? >> reporter: well, don, i'll tell you right now the romney campaign is feeling very optimistic, not only looking at those national polls, if you look at our latest cnn poll of polls mitt romney leading nationally over the president, but in ohio our latest cnn/orc, even though it shows the president with a healthy lead there, it is still within the margin of error and mitt romney has played some serious catch-up. there's another poll that came out a consortium of ohio newspapers that shows the race tied in this state. the romney campaign is feeling pretty good but the "x" factor in everything right now from now until election day, the last nine days of this race, all hinges on hurricane sandy at this point. an election that was already uncertain an
for the worst of sandy, others are already coping with, yes, snow and some serious damage. >> news4's jim rosenfield is here with the story. >> pat and jim, those were odd images, the guy with the horse costume. but wait until you see this strange image. blizzard conditions coming along with this storm already hitting west virginia. take a look. pictures from snowshoe, west virginia. where up to three feet of snow could fall in the mountains. winter storm warnings are also in effect for parts of western maryland as well. to new jersey now, the normally busy atlantic city. it's become a ghosttown. wind gusts now topping 70 miles per hour. just north of there, look at this photo, waves crashing over a seawall. mandatory evacuations in place by some parts of the state. look at the firefighters there. and this is what we're seeing in philadelphia. this is before sandy even makes landfall. high winds blowing this tree onto this house. the roof damaged. rain seeping into the home there. and here's a photo album tweeted by our nbc colleague al roker from martha's vineyard, with use of heavy wave

rules is convinced they are indispensible to democracy. his name is jim bopp. he's best known as the father of citizens united. he's been a leading force in the restructuring of campaign finance law. i caught up with him at his office in terre haute, indiana, and he told me why he believes secrecy is actually good for the political process. >> for people to participate in our democracy, citizens, they have to be able to talk about issues. and it's very important that that be protected, and the first amendment intended that that be protected. if they can't talk about issues because they're afraid that the federal election commission is going to investigate them or they're going to be complained about, or they're going to have to file a report, or they're going to have to do this and do that, then they are driven out of our democracy. >> ryssdal: bopp says disclosure laws keep people from participating in politics. >> anonymity for citizens is a very important concept because people are very reticent to contribute to overtly political entities. associating yourself with politica
in a neighborhood where those people are in the dark and might be for quite a while. shomari? >> reporter: well, jim, not only are they in the dark, but a lot of folks can't come down bradley boulevard. the creek perpendicular to this roadway has now jumped the banks and i tell you, it has extended over 30 minutes it was down i'd say we were on the other side and it continues to move up here on the roadway. it has not receded. there is more water u according to the crews out here, and they're parked nearby to make sure people stay away from this area. in fact, the crews that come right down this roadway and continue to move the logs that, you know, have snapped from the different trees around here, a lot of trees are down, as you mentioned, jim. and that's why crews are recommending that people be incredibly careful. when you come outside, they rem that you stay inside. this thing could be dying down, but the thing is right now, at times, as you can see, it continues to pick up a little bit. you can hear it with those branchs and the trees swaying back and forth. it's important for folks just to be
democrats, jerry conley, jim moran and bobby scott. the justice department is reviewing. it's interesting to me that small worked for a company known as pinpoint, a subsidiary of strategic allied consulting. that firm is already under investigation in florida. >> this company has come under fire in several areas. serious charges against it in florida. the republican party has severed ties to it. they're doing that in west virginia and colorado. it's an extraordinary turn of events. we are having a huge discussion over voter fraud and here is a company assigned to work for the party in identifying voters and doing the things they do. and evidence -- widespread allegations, serious allegations about their own hanky-panky is coming up. >> news flash. the gentleman you're talking about who's under investigation is still doing work for the republican party in other states. >> right. >> number two, there should have been an immediate investigation and you shouldn't have to wait for the u.s. attorney general, the virginia attorney general should have jumped in and done this and would have been,
evacuated. jim axelrod has more from lower manhattan. >> reporter: good morning. new yorkers pride themselves on being intrepid. and right now we still have some people walking along the wall here in lower manhattan. in a couple of hours if they're here, we'll have to look for another adjective other than intrepid. the big worry here is that the surge of water could be as high as 11, 12 feet. that would get over the wall, into the subway systems and electrical systems, and that's what the big catastrophic worry is here in lower manhattan. the transit system shut down schools shut down. 375,000 people from the lowest lying areas in new york have been evacuated as the biggest city braces for the impacts of hurricane sandy. charlie? >> thank you. >> thank you. >>> meteorologist from cbs 4 has been watching sandy closely. jeff, this is getting scary based on reports you're pulling in. it sounds like this is getting worse. >> good morning, nor amp good morning, everyone. yeah. this storm is getting a little bit worse in the atlantic now. you see that the core of th
itinerary. that's why we are going now to cnn's jim acosta always with the romney campaign and traveling with them. jim, the storm already having an impact on where you're going, isn't it? >> reporter: that is right, don. for the final nine days of the campaign, throw out the white dry erase board and perhaps take the doppler weather radar and lay it over the battleground map because that's how we track this campaign heading into the homestretch here. both campaigns, if you add them together of roughly a dozen campaign events so far between the president and mitt romney, mitt right now is heading to the gymnasium here in marion, ohio, with an event here tomorrow morning and then is getting out of the state. but, don, it will be very interesting to watch the final days of the campaign because of this storm. you saw the president also canceling events. not here in ohio, but his campaign events that were scheduled for today. instead of those campaign events, he went to church and the federal emergency agency to check on storm preparations there. now, the very interesting question that comes
jim webb and mark warner win in virginia back when we thought virginia was a red state. you are trying to figure that out in and out. what is virginia? >> virginia is still pretty much a red state. a lot of people say purple. but if you look at the makeup of the general assembly and what's going on in local -- >> still easier to be a local republican, you think, and get elected than being a local democrat? >> well, of course, it depends on the state. i mean, if you're in northern virginia, it's hard to find a republican. if you get down where i live, it's hard to find a democrat with a search warrant. it's the tale of two states, as you're aware, chuck. >> but it's also culture. and i want to say something, a man you're close friends with, jim webb, in an exit interview i did with him, we talked about the specific issue that he thinks president obama is having. and if he weren't having it, this election would be over. here's what he told me. >> i will tell you, i said that directly to the president about two weeks ago. you know, how in the name of the lord can the democratic party, the
sure jim is reelected. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. and i want to be the senior senator from ohio. we need josh mandel in ohio. we need him now. you know, president obama -- over the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them, he siad would result in new jobs that haven't happened. he said he'd cut the deficit. it hasn't happened. we have someone who is running for president who knows how to bring back jobs. he has the experience. he has the experience and the record nd he knows how to work with democrats and repubicansbls and that's why we need mitt romney to fix what's broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here in front of me. i will talk autos in a way that is straight talk. obama said a few things that, as he said, were "whoppers." he said, you wanted to take those companies through ban kruptcy. it was obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy. it was mitt romney who did provide for loan guarantees. every fact-checker who looked has said that barack obama was wrong and was not telling the truth. this is what is most important, with
it more difficult, houses that are so close together. in fact, abc news' jim dubreuil was on the scene overnight and here's how he described the scene. >> reporter: this is a community that lost the most people during 9/11, firefighters and cops during 9/11. this community was hit horribly tonight. then the fire just erupted. we were in a home and fire was literally right across from us. and as the fire just spread, we waded our way it another home and realized that the parking lot that we were next to, the cars literally started to blow up. again, the fire continued to spread. my understanding it has spread across about 12 blocks of breezy point. an area they call "the wedge." we thought we would come here and see people wanting to leave. tonight, they're being forced to leave not by flood, not by sandy, but by fire. >> we will be having information as it becomes available from queens. we'll have it for you again. a look at the greater new york city area struck so hard. including amy out there in staten island. >> josh, we have dramatic scenes of devastation coming into us right now.
. three years later a really smart guy named jim milstein who was at the treasury department and responsible for the restructuring of a.i.g. he is a lawyer and investment banking restructuring kind of person. and he put out a proposal which has many common ingredients that we saw from the mortgage bankers association. here the emphasis is on a government agency, the federal mortgage insurance corporation, which authorizes, manages, regulates a series of security identifiesers and -- securitizers and the companies are not guaranteed, just the securities are. and the beauty of both proposals is that the technology and infrastructure and systems and human capital of the g.s.e.'s be wasted but compete with them. so i believe there's been some consensus around a proposal that is feasible and would work. one was issued by somebody who had an ax to ground, the mortgage bankers association, but milstein, coming from the treasury department, presumably his view is what is best for the economy but it is a very similar kinds of proposal in my estimation. and i wish that we could move ah

' jim debrill was on the scene of the fire in queens. this is what he described. >> reporter: this is a community that lost the most people during 9/11. the firefighters and cons during 9/11. this area was hit horribly tonight. many expected there would be flooding. and then, the fire just erupted. we were in a home and fire was right across from us. as this fire just spread, we waited our way to another home. and then, realized, a parking lot we were next to, the cars started to blow up. and the fire continued to spread. my understanding, it has spread across about 12 blocks of breezy point, an area they call the wedge. we thought we would come here and see people that didn't want to leave. now, they're being forced to leave. not by water. not by flood. not by sandy. but by fire. >> devastation in queens. you see the areas affected in greater new york. we want to go back to staten island. >> that's right. we have more dramatic scenes of devastation coming in right now. extraordinary pictures of a large tanker ship washed up on the shores of staten island. this is a live look
to a rally this afternoon in the all-important swing state of ohio. our national political correspondent jim acosta joins us now from cleveland with more on what the republican presidential nominee is doing. what's going on, jim? >> reporter: wolf, things are changing by the moment. here with the romney campaign, we can tell you the romney campaign has gone ahead and canceled its events for tonight and tomorrow. he is keeping an event that is happening right around now in iowa -- >> unfortunately we've just lost our connection with jim acosta. we'll reconnect with him. we're watching the political fallout as well from this hurricane disaster that's unfolding. we'll get back to jim acosta. i think we actually have him back right now. jim, are you there? >> reporter: yes, i am, wolf. i don't know how much you heard, but i wanted to reiterate the romney campaign has canceled its events for tonight. it is keeping an event that happened right around now in the state of iowa. but what's interesting that's developed with this campaign is we have not heard definitively where the candidate will be to
. moderating the debate is action news anchorman jim gardner. hello. this is the only broadcast debate in the 2012 pennsylvania senate race between candidates bob casey and tom smith. and here are the rules to which the candidates have agreed for today eat meeting. the -- today's meeting. the format will include questions to the candidates from me and our two panelists. a coin toss determined the candidates' podium positions and the order of questioning. each candidate will have 90 seconds to respond to each question. the candidates will also have 90 seconds for closing statements, and the candidates are here to speak about the issues that voters are caring about in this very important campaign. and, gentlemen, to prepare for this debate, i asked an acquaintance what he has gotten out of the campaign. after a moment or two of consideration, he said, well, there's this senator zero thing, and then there's this tea party tom thing going on. and i asked him what else have you gotten out of the campaign, and he stared at me, and he said i can't really say. so i would ask you two gentlemen
, experienced photographer jim reid has a new book out, fittingly called, storm chaser. we have him on the phone to talk about that and the magnificent pictures we are seeing from this storm this, monster storm, frankenstorm sandy. are you there? >> caller: hi, heather. how are you? >> i understand you have been at this for 21 years, have you chased these storms. how did this one compare? >> caller: this is new territory. in the two decades i have been photographing hurricanes and tornadoes, i have never seen anything like this. i was very impressed with the way the forecasters both governmentally and privately hammed this so far in advance. >> have you covered many hurricane, katrina and isaac. compare, if you can, for us, some of the images you are seeing of sandy and images that you yourself took from those two storms? >> well, katrina was a fascinating experience, very destructive and the biggest storm i think i have seen, certainly the most destructive hurricane. i was -- dicover isaac a few months ago and irene in new york city. people are learning very quickly, the power of water. it does
know, it depends on the scientists. the leading edge scientists like jim hanson, kevin trenberth jim mccarthy, the ones that i think are right out at the cutting edge have been saying this. but you're quite right that many scientists have been very cautious and science has a cautious culture. you could almost say a conservative culture. their peer review process discourages them from even thinking about going out on a limb. and so they -- they are inherently cautious and conservative. but the evidence is now so overwhelming. you know, in the last ten years you showed some of the statistics but there there's an analysis of the extreme hot temperatures on the surface of the earth. they're now 100 times more common than they were just 30 years ago. and it is these extremely hot temperatures that are responsible for the increased evaporation, the increased water vapor in the air the increased drought. and remember this is hardly the only climate related disaster that we've had this year. 65% of the united state
's impact on the race and the economy with chuck todd and cnbc's jim cramer just ahead. >> a quick note for you. we're sad to say that due to sandy we will not be having our halloween celebration on the plaza tomorrow, so if you were planning to join us out here in costume, we want you to stay home, stay safe. we will get that done at some other point. things are more important. >> they are indeed. you'll have to put the ponte hose away for another year. get the latest on the storm, the record flooding we've seen in lower manhattan. let's get to natalie morales in battery park city in the southern tip of mat hannan. natalie, good morning to you again. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah, once again. we're fully now beginning to realize the devastation of sandy. as you have mentioned in the reporting, at least 16 deaths total being blamed on this storm. downtown here in lower manhattan, can you see the waters have receded. at the height of the storm though here in battery park there was a storm surge of 13 feet. that is a record-breaker here in new york city. at least 6 million pe

. >> and jim, what prospect is there at this point for any resolution of the fiscal cliff before year end regardless who have is in the white house? >> i don't expect it to be resolved before year end. and i think the best scenario is a temporary stay of execution. go into maybe march or something where there will have to be some big decisions made both on tax reform and entitlements. but i think there will be a ton of uncertainty heading in to 2013. >> thank you again for getting up for us. be safe on your way back. and as mentioned, we want your hurricane stories. especially if you're on wall street. maybe you remember the last type the new york stock exchange closed in 1985. world wide at cnbc.co cnbc.com, @cnbcwex, as well. and still to come, cnbc's own scott cohn is in new york as hurricane sandy is about to make the landfall. we have big dreams. one is for a clean, domestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy devel
's unheard of. jim cantore, he said this was the coldest hurricane he's ever covered in his entire life. it doesn't make sense. such a strange event. the storm sizewise was like the second biggest storm we've ever kept track of going up the coast including famous blizzards and hurricane. this storm was immense. the stronger the winds, the larger the wind field and the more water these storms throw on shore and that's why we have such problems. we haven't seen the worst of the pictures yet from the jersey shore. when chris christie said i think we'll be shocked when we see them tomorrow. there may be cases where the ocean met the bay. in other words, it just eroded right through the barrier islands and i think we're going to see some of that tomorrow. >> what will happen to terms tomorrow and this those snow areas. what can they expect from temperature tools? >> excellent point. usually you lose power and it's usy summertime and don't y. temperatures in the 50s and 60s during the day and at night, 40s and 50s. if you're trying to keep your family warm and you have no power, that's a whol
